This new series follows the unique characters that live and work at the major ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe region. In addition to the omnipresent avalanche danger, there are many life-threatening situations that arise daily in the alpine environment. Up in the high sierra where temperatures can plunge well below freezing, just minutes may be the difference between rescuing an injured person or retrieving a body. In the style of “Deadliest Catch,” Tahoe – The Battle Against Winter is shot in a fluid modern style with the camera crews actually living among the characters they are filming. This allows them to capture every minute of the action. Wrap all of this around the “Jewel of the Sierra Nevada” and you have one hip, slick, cool show.
